The New, Improved Yves Saint Laurent MASCARA VOLUME EFFET FAUX CILS

Thanks to Influenster, I got to try out the new, improved formula that YSL used on their classic MASCARA VOLUME EFFET FAUX CILS. This mascara is supposed to give a "False Lash" effect.
Since mascara looks are VERY subjective
(some want length, some want volume, some want definition, some want very dramatic lashes, others want more natural looking lashes), I won't try to tell you about how good or bad it is. What I'll do is show you what the mascara looks like on me.

Forget Pills! Absorb Your Vitamin B12 & Your Magnesium?


Although I must take a number of pills, I don't enjoy it.
Especially those big horse pills!
When I can find an alternative way to take my supplements and vitamins, other than pills, I'm all for it. I try to get as many of my vitamins naturally, through my food, as possible. But some levels are just not going to be achieved through food alone, so I must supplement.
I recently found a very cool alternative method for a couple of vitamins I like to take:
absorbing through the body's largest organ...the skin!

Getting Rid of Dandruff & Flaking Naturally


In our family, there are a few of us who suffer from dandruff.
I get seasonal dry scalp flaking, from time to time.
We've tried lots of different things over the years, including prescription strength shampoo. Some of it has worked, some of it didn't. But everything we tried had chemicals and other unnatural stuff in it, which I'm trying to avoid now, because it's...
not good for you, not good for the earth.
I'm VERY happy to report that I've found an answer to both the Dandruff issue AND the occasional dry scalp flaking, and it's natural!
